Felix Sturm Interview: "Chudinov said I won fair and square"

Hello Felix, congratulations on your world title winning effort. How do you feel after all?

Thank you! I´m feeling great as champion again.

What were your feelings during the fight?

I felt quite comfortable. the first 5 rounds went by pretty quick. And I think I won them all. Rounds 9, 11 and 12 were also mine. That was enough for the victory. I gave myself some rest between the 6th and 8th, reduced my tempo a little bit. Maybe it would have been clearer if I hadn´t done so. Of course Fedor is a great boxer and was a strong opponent, especially if you consider the low number of fights he had so far. He´s got my respect! As fighter and as a human!
